Utah's Approach to Immigration
Utah's Approach to Immigration

Listen
AIR DATE: March 16, 2011

Arizona passed a controversial immigration law that sparked outrage in that community. But, in Utah legislators have taken an approach that combines support for undocumented immigrants while at the same time cracking down on enforcement. Two bills were passed in Utah's legislature, one creates a guest worker program for immigrants and another is similar to Arizona's controversial S.B. 1070 an would allow police to check the immigration status of suspected undocumented immigrants. We talk with one Utah lawmaker and an immigrants rights advocate about Utah's approach to dealing with immigration.
